Our Future Projects
Full Potential Programme
At MYTime, we believe that no child’s destiny should be defined by their beginning, and yet according to Carers Trust, young adult carers aged between 16 and 18 years are twice as likely to be not in education, employment, or training (NEET). Through the Full Potential Programme, MYTime aims to address this issue in two ways. On the one hand, we plan to help young carers of 18-25 who are currently not in employment to develop a skillset and so improve their professional prospects. On the other hand, we aim to educate employers about the number of young people affected by caring responsibilities and the challenges they face as well as the wealth of skills they have to offer, so that issues such as lateness to work or poor GCSE results might not pose such significant barriers to young carers’ career progression as they do now.
